Rated 5 out of 5Â by xoxbreakfreexox Just what I needed
I was looking to upgrade my current crock pot and this works perfect. Large enough for a good size roast and tons of potatoes and carrots.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by cooknjedi Excellent cooker with quality control issues
First the good..This slow cooker performs flawlessly. We have cooked 7 meals in it ranging from stews/soups to meat and/or casserole type dishes. All came out perfectly. The cooker is programmable and you can set it in hours or 30 minute increment cooking times if you so desire and will automatically go to the warm setting when finished. I really like this cooker and it looks very nice on my counter matching our other black appliances. The lid locks down if you need to transport it which is nice.
Now the bad..Crock Pot's quality control is another issue. Upon opening the box (which was factory sealed btw- and not a return) and taking it out of the plastic bag it was in, there were several "sweat stains" and fingerprints all over it from the person or people who put it together! In addition to that, there were a few scratches here and there all very minor on the exterior and one that was more noticeable on one of the control pad buttons. The black paint is also very thinly applied and you can actually start to see the gray metal coming through on one side in a couple places. The first time we used it, a small crack appeared from under the lid handle about an inch which could not be felt just seen. Apparently the lid handle was tightened too much to the glass lid during the manufacturing process as it is held on with one phillips screw. To their credit, Crock Pot Chat C/S rep immediately sent us another lid. I just about returned it for these reasons but glad I kept it as it cooks so well. Crock Pot definitely needs to work on their quality control however. We look foward to using the cooker in the coming months as fall and winter approaches. It certainly will be a test to see how well our Crock Pot holds up. I gave it five stars for it's excellent cooking ability and definitely recommend it. I just suggest that you examine yours carefully when you get it to be sure you haven't gotten a "less than perfect" example. You paid for a brand new undamaged item and that's what you should expect.

I use this product frequently and was really happy with it at first. But recently, the ceramic bowl cracked while cooking, this was after one of the locking devices became disconnected and dangles when not engaged.

I love my new Crock-Pot! It's great for potluck dinners where I can easily transport the pot with the attachable lid.
